Funds are available as a direct result of the sale of Saskatchewan Lotteries products. The funding is provided through local authorities throughout the province to assist them to maintain, improve and expand opportunities for people of all ages to derive the benefits from involvement in sport, culture and recreational programs and activities. For this reason, only those expenditures that can be directly related to the provision of programs and services will qualify for grant assistance.
The goal of this grant is to encourage and facilitate people getting involved in sport, culture and recreation activities. The Grant Program funding is divided into two sections:
Target Populations: A portion of the funding has been specifically allocated to encourage programs that serve the needs of various target groups. These target groups include individuals who are physically, mentally, emotionally, socially or financially disadvantaged. Organizations that serve or represent indigenous peoples, seniors, single parent families, women and youth at risk are also eligible to access this category of funding. Programs for these special populations may include only the specific interest group or may also include the general public.
